Making a Folded Brim
Well thinking outside the bag. Using the Circle Loom Hat kit I bought (which came is a useful drawstring bag) set me on the path I've been contemplating for a while, making hats. I am a hat person. I made my first hat! It was very basic a knitted tube stitched across the top to 'close' it. It looked more like a bag without a strap or an iDevise sock than a hat. It also curled at the bottom.
So what do I do next? What should hat number two be? With my digital curiosity and Google in my browser I first looked at the kit makers search result "Fashion Angels" to see if they had any a makers community. Being a teen craft kit the resources reflected the target demographic and didn't have much beyond the marketed kits. I looked to see if the kit was on Amazon looking for related products. Here I landed on the Circle Loom Knitting key phrase. The top result was Round Loom - 100 Free Patterns - LoomaHat.com. The second element on the navigation was Hats...
There are 4 drop-downs I simply followed. They are fully explained and superbly illustrated with photos and video tutorials.
This hat is made from just one stitch the E-wrap stitch.
This hat was given as a gift to Ella, my good friend and business partner in crime Phil Campbell's little girl. It was the perfect size for her.
